BlackBerry Curve Sunset
T-Mobile on Monday gave the BlackBerry Curve its final send-off with the launch of the Sunset model. The QWERTY keyboard smartphone now comes in a unique, namesake reddish hue along with black accents. T-Mobile's version also keeps to the Wi-Fi support of the 8320 reference design and lets HotSpot@Home subscribers make unlimited calls on Wi-Fi that automatically bridge to the cellular network when the user wanders out of range.
This version of the Curve is largely faithful to the stock model and supplies a two-megapixel camera, a native headphone minijack, and a microSD card slot that holds up to 4GB of data. T-Mobile makes the Sunset available today both online and at retail, and sells it for $150 with a two-year contract.
